About Ilya

Ilya is a 1984 Macgregor 25 foot sailboat, a member of the Sailboat Hall of Fame.

This is the other Ilya, an adult male manatee who has been sighted in and around Cape Cod (where we used to vacation) the Chesapeake Bay (where we live now) and rescued some years ago in New Jersey (where we used to live).  Since my daughter is just crazy about manatees, we adopted Ilya through the Save the Manatee Club, and decided to name our boat after him as well.  While it does seem a little strange to refer to the boat as she, Ilya himself is a he.
